Discover Newport

23 America's Cup Avenue
Newport, RI 02840


The road less traveled won't lead you to Newport. In fact, just the opposite is true. For more than 375 years, we've been welcoming visitors from near and far. It's how this charming New England enclave earned its moniker, America's First Resort. Our destination has evolved from a haven for religious dissenters, a prominent Colonial-era port and Gilded Age playground to a locale ripe with art, culture, and history. Throughout our nine coastal communities, explore miles of unspoiled beaches, scenic trails, distinctive shops, renowned restaurants, diverse accommodations and world-class events: its our past, and our present, that makes this place original. Come discover what makes us original to you, and like the road well traveled, make each step count.
